Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Lord, I want to set the world on fire for you but I feel like two dry sticks. I rub and rub but no fire sparks from my own hands. I want the power of your Spirit at all times, knowing that it comes from you and not me. I would start a forest fire ruining the spiritual environment around me because of my misuse of your power. I need you all the time to be my fire, to be the passion in my soul for righteousness. God you are my consuming fire and the strength to my flame in my life. Let me be like Paul when he was bitten by a snake, shaking it off into a fire and not being harmed. Yes, when the enemy comes to bite me with sin and death, let me shake off evil desire into holy desire. Give me a pure heart that yearns for the things of God. It is by His word that the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly people. We need Christ's holy fire in us so we are not destroyed by the brightness of His Coming.
